2012 Resolution No. 2: Organize

Source: bhg.com via Laurie on Pinterest





With a new year comes a fresh start in many areas of life. One such area is my home! I am very ready to go through everything and get rid of things I don't need, then organize the things I do. My cabinets, closets and drawers are in need of a good purging. I know there are easy and inexpensive solutions for my mess. Take a look at these simple ways to reorganize all the nooks and crannies:



I do this now: put sheets folded or rolled into one of the pillowcases and stack them on a shelf




I also have done this, but need to clean my refrigerator. I love the result! I got plastic bins and filled each one with different things: fruit, veggies, cheese and cold cuts, breakfast items and then I grouped my refrigerated condiments on the smaller top shelf and drinks on the taller middle shelf. I like being able to pull out the veggie bin and make a salad without digging around for the ingredients for ten minutes.




Put your saved plastic grocery bags in an old tissue box and either tape it to the inside of your cabinet door or keep it with your trash bags and odds and ends. You'd be amazed at how many you can fit into the box!




This is genius. I definitely plan on organizing all those pesky rolls of wraps into a magazine holder. Now I just have to figure out what to do with the magazines!




Grab some stickers and go to town on all of those chargers that you have to sift through to figure out which ones go to which small appliance.




If you go get a jump start on your weekly meals, this is a good way to organize everything. It's similar to the refrigerator concept, but geared toward a specific meal. Just toss your ingredients in the bin and when you are ready, get to cooking!

Let's face it, I have way too many shoes to ever fit in one of these shoe things. I do have enough cleaning supplies though! This gets it out from under my kitchen sink and into a central location, like my washer and dryer closet.




I have yet to explore Nashville's new Container Store, but online I have found so many stylish ways to stay organized. I grabbed a few just for you to see!
